src questions, test cases?

   Does cygwin (or anyone else) have a set of test cases they
use for regression testing?  Are these publically available?

I have a couple of questions about cygwin.dll (winsup) src:

 - why does select iterate over all the file descriptors instead
   of just the ones set in the bit vectors?

 - why does select open up a stream socket after firing off the
   select thread?

 - Couldn't asynchronous operations be used to select on sockets
   instead of firing off a seperate thread?

 - Is there any way of asynchronously checking for data on a pipe?

                                       Tim N.

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"" with one line of text: "help".
